What will the professional cleaning sector look like in 2017?

Dr Ilham Kadri, president of the Diversey Care division at Sealed Air, writes her latest blog for ECJ. Here she reflects upon the top professional cleaning industry trends for 2016, but more importantly, looks at how the fast-paced industry will evolve and shift across the next twelve months.  

Addressing Legionella risk in buildings

Common building systems, such as cooling towers, hot water tanks, faucet aerators, shower heads, hot tubs and decorative fountains, all produce fine water droplets that can harbour Legionella bacteria growth. Without proper management and maintenance to building systems, this bacteria can grow, releasing fine aerosols that can be inhaled deeply into the lungs, causing respiratory infections in occupants and the potentially fatal Legionnaire disease, a form of pneumonia.

Improving hand hygiene in healthcare facilities

Anyone who sets foot in a health facility hopes to leave healthier than, or as healthy as, when one came in. The problem is that health facilities are under constant threat of healthcare-associated infections (HCAIs), described by the World Health Organization (WHO) as one of the most frequent harmful situations during care delivery. 

Are hospital sinks doing more harm than good?

Fears that hospital sinks could be spreading illness have been raised by infection control experts. And this could be a problem in the light of today's increasing focus on hand washing in healthcare according to Dr Michael Gardam, director of infection control at Canada's University Health Network. "The thing about sinks is that they're the cornerstone of infection control policy," he said.  

European collaboration leads to toilet paper made out of milk

A premium-priced toilet roll made from waste milk will be hitting Italian supermarket shelves this winter. Carezza di Latte - which translates as "milk caress" - is a collaboration between German fabric innovator Qmilk and Italian tissue company Lucart. The product will be made from waste milk that cannot be sold, perhaps because a cow has been unwell or similar reasons. 

Hygienic design: How our thinking has evolved

Hygienic design has always been a forward-looking, futuristic discipline with the intent of modifying equipment and facility design for easier cleaning. An easily cleaned food plant establishes a firm foundation for a sanitary environment to enable production of high-quality and safe food.  

Flu season is back — and just might ruin your holidays, disease specialists say

It’s that time of year again — that sneezing, coughing, aching, feel-so-lousy time of year. Yup, flu season is back. And not only is the winter scourge starting early this year, it’s on track to be a major spoiler for holiday festivities, infectious-disease specialists predict.  

Around the world in 12 toilet pictures

On November 19, the world celebrates a most unglamorous holiday: World Toilet Day. The man who turned a taboo subject into an international day is Singaporean businessman Jack Sim, who founded the World Toilet Organization in 2001 and later the World Toilet College, World Toilet Summit, and bathroom associations around the globe. 

Smart buildings get smarter with IoT

Smart buildings have been around for quite some time. The need to make them smart began with a need to conserve energy. When we save energy, we save money—and lots of it over time. It’s been shown that in most cases it’s possible to see return on investment (ROI) within 12 to 18 months. This is a powerful incentive for organizations to invest in the technology necessary to install a building management system (BMS). How can a facility executive say no to that?
